However, on the other hand, the Indian cricket captain must have passed an important test to convince the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) to continue signing him and eventually retain him.

Virat Kohli of Royal Challengers Bangalore remains with the team, while MS Dhoni continues to represent the Chennai Super Kings.

The $30 million fee Kli was paid by the Indian team was equivalent to150 million Indian rupees ($2 million) plus $200,000 in retention fee. Before Tuesday’s deadline, his team had also signed on Mohammed Siraj and Glenn Maxwell from Australia, so they had 570 million Indian rupees left to spend in the auction.Each team will have a combined salary cap of 900 million Indian rupees to spend at the auction, minus the retention deduction.
